I found this enameled metal frame at one of my favorite thrift shops, and molded it using Amazing Mold Putty.

Frame and MoldNext, I filled the mold with the Paperclay. It is soft and pliable right out of the package—easy to use!! I began by pressing pieces of clay around the mold. I wanted to be sure I captured all the rich detail in the mold, so I used a rolling pin to press the clay into the mold.

After letting this rest for about 15 minutes I unmolded the frame and trimmed away the waste. There was a small amount of sanding after the frame dried, but this trimming step saved lots of time and dust!!

After the frame was completely dried, I dusted it with Pumpkin Orange and Salmon Pink mica powders and glued on the roses. The roses were molded from a button and cast using Amazing Casting Resin that was dyed with alcohol inks. A dusting of Alumilite bronze and gold metallic powders give the roses the perfect vintage look. The only thing to add is a Valentine picture!!Finished Frame
